Day 3 – London Walks & Hampton Court Palace
Day three at ISCA and our busiest yet. After an early wake up, we made our first trip to London and had a whistle stop tour through Britain’s history. The students were particularly impressed by Buckingham Palace and some even managed to get a glimpse of the changing of the guards. The Victoria Memorial, St James’ Park, Trafalgar Square, Nelson’s Column and 10 Downing Street were other stops on our tour of the nation’s capital and we really made the most of our time.
Also in our jampacked schedule was a trip to Henry VIII’s very own residence: Hampton Court Palace. We saw just how lavishly he lived and the vast oppulence of the royal gardens. After soaking up all this history, the students let off some energy racing around the maze and rewarded their efforts with a scrumptious scoop of ice cream.
Not only did we see and learn a great deal but we also struck lucky with the weather with no rain and perfect temperatures for our travels.
Tomorrow is our first on-campus day where the students will be learning how to play cricket, netball and rugby. Let’s see how they get on…
